Dear WIJSF Members,
As you know travel is a large part of what many musicians do. Personally, I’ve performed on 5 continents in 16 countries. With 196 countries on the planet, that leaves 180 countries for me to visit. Places I’d like to return to are Athens, Greece, Taormina, Sicily, Bahia and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Capetown, South Africa. Also, I plan to visit Tahiti, Santorini, Greece, Fez and Marrakesh, Morocco, and Barbados.
I am now in my 60s, not many clubs, festivals or jazz societies are reaching out to me. But my wanderlust continues. So, I am now a Referring Travel Agent (RTA) with my own home-based business at www.fyitravel.us, where I just booked my hotel room, when I went to Birmingham for the Steel City Jazz Fest, where I met our member Gail Jhonson with Jazz in Pink on June 7-8. I made a commission on that booking, which is something I NEVER received, since 1990, when I began touring.
When I joined the travel biz in March, I paid $249, plus $50 a month for my website. Starting on Monday, July 14, YOU can join my team for $99, and you will not pay for the website until October 1 and, if you bring 3 people on to your team, you will pay $0 for your website as long as they remain active. Check out my blog – www.fyitravelclub.wordpress.com.
WHY have your own travel site? Go to this link www.60mba.com and see what you like best about it.
By the way, our immediate past Vice President Lydia Harris introduced me to Lucretia Daniel, who is our Travel Director. Lucretia became a member of WIJSF on June 1, 2014. She supported our organization the same way I supported her organization. Now, we are planning a Women in Jazz event at Sandals all-inclusive resort in Turks & Caicos in 2015.
As all the musicians in WIJSF know, living on a musician’s income can be extremely challenging. We all must supplement our income, somehow. So, I encourage you to go to www.60mba.com and, if you see something that interests you, respond to this email or call me at the number below and THANK YOU for supporting women musicians, globally.
